Yes, Jill and in my case caused scar neuromas and nerve entrapment. Any
invasive procedure can cause more adhesions. I also had a cystoscopy at the
same time as my last laparoscopy (supposedly to take a peek and remove
adhesions) and the Urologist had to make his own incisions for his own
tools. So instead of having three pops for the lap I had 6. I have now been
told by several specialists that I should never ever have any kind of
surgery or invasive procedure again unless it's a matter of life or death.
That means no more peeks. Unless they have a bona fide diagnosis nobody is
ever going to peek inside any part of my body again. Period.
>So glad you are finding help with your docs - that is half the battle!
Absolutely. It is so important once you know you have adhesions to make sure
that any doctor taking care of you fully understands the problems they cause
and the dilemma in treating a patient who has them.
